David Vitter unloads his Diaper

Apparently his brand is not Pampers:

After quoting comments from President Obama suggesting that he’d like his judicial nominees to be able to empathize with the downtrodden, Vitter declared that demanding empathy in a judge was something you’d expect in a "dictatorship."

Apparently Vitter thought "1984" ended, like much of Vitter’s life, with a "happy ending".

Yes, all of history’s dictatorships and all their George Winston marching songs, the interrogations where they almost burn your skin with lit clove cigarettes, the attempts to "help out" Poland (they never forgot them). Everybody knows Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Saddam, Pinochet, Amin, both Papa AND Baby Doc DuValier — all people persons — all caring nurturers — all touchy-feely — never trod upon anyone.

They were not cold, calculating, uncaring bastards like say Abe Lincoln and Jesus, what with their, "judge not, that we be not judged"?

What kind of a empathetic a-hole would say that?

David Brooks' "Lying Flashback" About Obama's Economic "Failures"



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
